with obama as president and the democrats in the senate to even get votes on good ideas. in other words, we're now finally getting the democrats in the senate to write a budget which for 1418 days, four years, they never wrote a budget. how do you campaign against democrats in the senate if they don't even write down what they're for? so there are differences in how you structure. i think there's a lot to be learned from republican successes with governors like walker in wisconsin who made dramatic changes on the cost of government, government-run pensions, the unionized government work force and bobby jindal with school choice. he's planning this year to abolish the corporate and individual income tax, moving in a very different direction than the national democrats want to and winning elections with that approach. so there's a lot to be learned both by the failure of the romney campaign and the senate races and the successes the republicans have had at the state level. >> host: and we're taking your calls in this segment with grover norquist with americans for tax reform. the phone lines
simpson-bowles, and they could never openly clear for obama care or the ryan budget. and the debt also -- >> hopes for a grand bargain were dashed. >> yes, the same thing, it is unexamined on some level. secondarily, if you say deficit reduction, the partisan are leeched out. we are talking about whether it will work to balance the budget. if along the way 35 million become uninsured, that's sad but we don't talk about it because cbo didn't mention it in the score. that's the great trick of paul ryan to recognize if you only talk about budget deficit, where does your budget put the deficit 20, 30 years from now, the amount of things you sneak in under that cloak that you can never put into the conversation in a serious way in normal times is tremendous. that's the central political innovation of his career. >> the favorite thing in the accounting discussion is compare the government to a family, saying you couldn't -- well, families do run debt, they cannot afford to buy their houses for cash, so they have a thing called a mortgage, which is the national debt of the family in effe
a future president, it was illinois state senator barack obama who said in 2002, i don't oppose all wars. what i am opposed to is a dumb war. this is a war that cost the lives of anywhere from 110,000 to 1 million civilians. today is not a day to cheer for success. but it is a day to remember those who fought hard to avoid the war's tragic consequences. get your cell phones out. >> michael moore was booed off the stage for denouncing the invasion of iraq. so much for these bleeding heart liberals in hollywood. let us not forget the response from around the globe. u.n. secretary annan said the war was illegal. nelson mandela called it a threat to peace. pope john paul ii said the war would not solve problems of man. jesse jackson called on peaceful people everywhere to march until the war was over. let us admire and respect the position of a former president, as well as the words from a future president, it was illinois state senator barack obama who said in 2002, i don't oppose all wars. what i am opposed to is a dumb war. this is a war that cost the lives of anywhere from 110,000 to 1 m
, and also part of president clinton's legacy. i would hope that president obama would learn from that. the american people overwhelmingly support balancing our budgets. and the budget the senate democrats are considering never balances, ever. that means more debt, fewer jobs, and, frankly, much higher taxes from the american people. we certainly hope the president will change his mind and submit a plan that actually balances the budget. let's be clear, the democrats in this town who reject the goal of balancing the budget i think were out of step of where the american people are. the american people know you can't continue to spend money you don't have. i didn't come here for a fancy title or big office. i want to hand my kids and grandkids the same shot at the american dream that i had, not some mountain of debt. that's why republicans are standing with the american people and working to balance he federal budget. >> there's been talk about these budgets here and budgets aren't binding. do you think that budgets cause -- budget process that they are essentially political weapons -- j
the attack. president obama has made clear in the past that in his view, the use of chemical weapons by either side in syria would change the rules for our involvement in syria. chief washington correspondent james rosen is live from the white house with more. >> the pentagon has been more definitive than the white house telling us they have yet no confirmation, no confirmation that chemical weapons have been used by either side in the syrian civil war, it was syrian state-run television that first made the allegation, broadcasting images purporting to show the victims of the chemical attack being treated near the syrian border. assadd blamed the rebels and the white house stated there is no evidence the rebels used such weapons and the officials here are deeply skeptical of such claims by the regime. >> i can tell you that we are assessing the reports about the possible use of chemical weapons, as well as the reports about the origins of possible chemical weapons in syria. and no other about our judgments on that. i can tell you that we're evaluating it. >> and assad has used scud
obama. and then trying to help broker that turkish/israeli agreement to restart their relations. and then, of course, his trip to jordan and then the unannounced secret trip to baghdad only yesterday, where he was really chiding and warning prime minister maliki that he has to do something to stop those iranian overflights, rearming syria. so this has been a pretty busy trip, a late-night dinner they have not announced last night with the very powerful head of the army, the army chief of staff, cayenny from pakistan in eamon of all things. he's not going to pakistan on this trip and usually secretaries of state go to both pakistan and afghanistan. but he's not going to pakistan, because they are in a political transition, and it just could not be worked out. so there has been a lot on his plate. but right now, front and center is president karzai. chris? >> thanks, andrea. >>> next, a big week ahead for same-sex marriage. as the supreme court takes up two cases that could be a game-changer for millions of gay and lesbian couples nationwide. we'll break down what's at stake. >>>
no it doesn't because the obama administration has relied on a policy known as signature strikes where people are targeted in certain regions of pakistan or yemen based on where they live and if they're military age males. so what we've seen and these are escalating is that people are being killed by the u.s. government and they don't even know their identity. what i've seen in my reporting on the ground in somalia, yemen, and elsewhere is we'll have tremendous blowback from this if we don't take a serious step back and look at the impact on the ground of the drone strikes. >> how about that? you've written about whether in pakistan these drone strikes create more terrorists than they kill as jeremy argued. >> well, what we actually look at is public opinion. what is interesting, everyone knows pakistanis tend to dislike the drones in the major cities. what we don't actually know is what pakistanis think about the drones in the tribal areas. in my own travels on pakistan i find that people, the closer they are to the drones the less willing they are to say they hate them. in part because they
to the left of president obama on this issue. >> i think freedom means freedom for everyone, and, as many of you know, one of my daughters is gay, and something that we've lived with for a long time in our family. i think people ought to be free to enter into any kind of union they wish. >> of course these recent numbers also show that almost half of americans still oppose same-sex marriage. >> this country's doom is coming. >> and they'll be watching just as closely this week when the supreme court tackles the hot-button issue for the very first time. they're the last people you want making mistakes but reducing the insane hours for medical interns may do more harm than good, according to new data released just moments ago. back in 2011, the maximum shift interns could work was cut from 24 to 16 hours, but one study shows that interns did not sleep any longer and they were actually more worried about making mistakes. another study shows that patients thought it led to a lower quality of care, both studies being presented in the journal of the american medical association. >>> they're not
